#ShowOfStrength Campaign with Kelly Walker

Author Kelly Walker is celebrating strong women with the #SHOWOFSTRENGTH campaign. What is #SHOWOFSTRENGTH ? Simply put, it’s about you. The women who inspire you, and the fictional heroines who entertain you. Sometimes we forget to take the time to tell the women in our lives just how much we notice and appreciate their strength. In this season of giving, #SHOWOFSTRENGTH is giving you a chance to change that. We’re inviting you to nominate the strong women in your life to be featured here on www.kellywalker.net and one lucky nominee will be chosen at random to win a huge prize pack filled with various gift cards, signed swag, books and more. The event ends on December 20th. Go to Kelly Walker’ website to nominate the strong women in your life. click on the picture above to enter the giveaway and to find out more information

  Welcome to my stop on the My Name Is Rapunzel blog tour My Name is Rapunzel by K.C. Hilton Paperback, First, 302 pages Published November 22nd 2013 by Createspace Age Group:Young Adult Source: ecopy from Author Summary: My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. It wasn’t their fault. They didn’t know the truth. Nobody did. My name is Rapunzel. I will tell you my story. I will tell you the truth. My Name is Rapunzel is a very magical and nicely told re-telling of Rapunzel.

Tangled for instance is a super cute disney movie about Rapunzel, and in that version she was the… Read more »
